Sparks Expands Pediatric Care Team

(July 24, 2012) - Sparks Health System announces the addition of two physicians to our pediatric care team.

Samina Z. Nadvi, M.D., and Cecil W. Gaby, MD, are bringing their years of experience treating patients in the River Valley area to Sparks.

A board-certified pediatrician, Dr. Nadvi will be seeing patients at Sparks Pediatrics, 1501 Waldron Road in Fort Smith. As a parent herself, Dr. Nadvi said she understands what it’s like to have a sick child.  She is looking forward to being a part of the Sparks team. “I’ve always admired the Sparks Pediatrics practice. I’m so excited to be joining them,” Dr. Nadvi said.

Dr. Gaby will bring his pediatric specialization to the team of hospitalists serving Sparks Regional Medical Center. He is passionate about providing proper care for children. “My first love is inpatient care,” Dr. Gaby said. “If children have to be sick, I want to take care of them.”

The addition of Dr. Gaby to the Sparks staff means pediatric physicians will be available 24 hours a day at the facility.
